Ad’k Center for Writing seeks applications for Anne LaBastille residency

The Adirondack Center for Writing is seeking applicants for the Anne LaBastille Memorial Writer Residency which will be held at Twitchell Lake from October 8 through 22, 2016.

The point of this residency is to provide space, time and an inspiring landscape for regional and outside writers to work on their writing projects, a chance to unplug and connect with other writers, and to tap into their creative selves. 

There will be no internet or cellphones at the residency. Rooms are single occupancy with private baths; food will be provided.

There is space for six writers. Half of the spaces will be reserved for regional authors, and the others will be open to writers from all over the world.

Writers in any genre are welcome to apply.

The residency is free to accepted residents, with the exception of a $25 application fee.

Quality of written submissions will be of primary consideration when accepting applications.

Applications will be accepted through May 20th. To apply for this year’s residency, visit the ACW website:

The residency opportunity is provided by the estate of Anne LaBastille, whose books, including Woodswoman and Beyond Black Bear Lake, were written from her cabin on Twitchell Lake.

During the residency, the writers will paddle to the site of her property and explore the lake with local residents.
